Had to or did change apple ID as it was my discontinued email address. The server is shutting down.
Let me stop you right there.
Let's say your apple id was firstname.lastname@example.org
and abc service provider were closing down.
You just log into the apple site or iTunes with your apple ID and change your contact
email to your new email address. Your Apple ID will still be email@example.com
but all correspondence between you and Apple will use your new email address.
The fact that firstname.lastname@example.org
doesn't exist as an email address any more doesn't matter it's just a username.
So just change your contact email address and carry on using your existing apple ID.
